First Peoples Virtual 5K
Celebrate and recognize the indigenous people and their sacrifices by adding this commemorative medal to your collection. Photo op with the Hyarima Statue. Hyarima was the last great leader of Trinidad’s indigenous people. He was a Nepuypo, a sub-Tribe of the Carinepogoto (Carib) people whose villages were established throughout northeast Trinidad.
Hyarima, it is said, could summon hundreds of warriors from the villages that then surrounded Arima. A great warrior and cacique (war chief), he was both feared and respected by the Spanish who were attempting to colonise Cairi (which they renamed Trinidad) and by the Dutch who were attempting to settle in Tobago. Hyarima joined the Dutch in 1636 to raid Spanish outposts in Trinidad. He was involved in the last successful revolt by this islands indigenous people and is considered the first National Hero of Trinidad and Tobago by the Santa Rosa Carib Community of Arima.
